Boise State senior defensive tackle Darren Koontz steps into a starting role Saturday and likely for the rest of the season. He has started once in his career, earlier this season against Miami (Ohio) when Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe was suspended. Koontz moves into Tjong-A-Tjoe’s tackle spot. Tjong-A-Tjoe slides over to nose tackle to replace injured senior Mike Atkinson (torn ACL).
